Future Family

So this weekend we threw a bridal shower for Laura, Jared's fiance. It was a blast! For those of you who don't know, Laura is my DEAR friend Sarah's sister... and Sarah and I had the bright idea to set her up with Josh's brother, Jared. Needless to say, it worked out well. :) The wedding is set for May 9th!

So Josh's mom (Kari), his sisters Amber and Cassidy and I threw Laura a shower. Mom's friend Stacey was kind enough to open her home for the event, and we had a fun, fancy "tea party." It was complete with punch, cucumber sandwiches, chocolate-covered strawberries and lots of other great foods! YUM!

We also had some fun games. First, Laura was quizzed on how well she knows her groom. For every answer she got wrong, she had to chew a big piece of gum. She did REALLY well, but still managed to end up with a mouthful as you can see... ;)

Then it was time to test the fashion sense of our party-goers. We broke them into two teams and had them make wedding dresses. Our models were the "moms" Bev (Laura's mom) and of course my mother-in-law Kari (Josh and Jared's mom). And the fabric of choice? Toilet paper. Laura served as judge of the finished products and Mom Kari's team won out! But, as you can see, both moms looked LOVELY! :)

It was a great time with some great ladies. We're so looking forward to welcoming Laura into the family! And we get even more great in-laws to boot 'cause Laura has such an awesome family! We're so looking forward to May! Josh and Zack are both in the wedding, as well, so it should be tons of fun! Yay for weddings! :)
